Description : In dealing with the concept of magic in ancient Egypt, I came across some rather fascinating information in regards to other religions ceremonies belonging to the Christians and the Catholics. Some remarkable connections... In the pursuit of the knowledge of magic in ancient Egypt, we again arrive right at the door of the Stars and Constellations. We are not brought here by mysterious objects or elusive ideas, no, we are indeed guided by the ancient Egyptians themselves. We seem to have forgotten how important the "Word" is, even the idea of "the Word" descends from the ancient Egyptians, and surely they knew how to use their words.

Description : Treasures of Darkness: Finding God When Hope Seems Hidden People generally consider dark times in life as times that are filled with pain, fear, anxiety, depression, loss, or sadness. Tara Soughers recognizes such moments in her own life. When hope seemed hidden, however, she encountered God. She tells us that she does not always recognize her times of darkness as grace-filled. “There are times when God seems absent in the darkness. There are times when I feel lost and even abandoned. But my journeys through the darkness have revealed God to me in ways that I could never have imagined.” She shares personal stories about dark times in her life and how she encountered God through the experiences. She invites us to embrace the darkness as an opportunity to experience the treasure of God’s love, presence, and power. Soughers invites us to explore several biblical stories in which darkness plays a major role, and each of the scripture readings offers a unique treasure in the darkness. Psalm 139:12 proclaims a powerful truth about God. “Even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.” God creates in darkness (Genesis 1). God gives us “life . . . the light of all people” in Jesus Christ (John 1:4). Abraham, Paul, Jacob, Job, Nicodemus, and Jesus encounter treasures from God in the darkness. As Soughers explores each biblical account, she offers a unique point of contact for contemporary Christians, treasures that can sustain us as we encounter darkness in our lives.
